Hudson Votes Against Voter Fraud, Abuse of Taxes
WASHINGTON, D.C.  – Today U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement after voting no on H.R. 1, partisan legislation that will expand the federal government's power over elections at the expense of state and local election laws, heavily infringe on Americans’ constitutionally protected First Amendment rights, and cost taxpayers billions of dollars:
“Defying all common sense, this bill would use your tax dollars to bankroll political campaigns for politicians you don't support and fundamentally disagree with,” said Rep. Hudson. “It would also weaken our election system and make voter fraud easier. It’s not just irresponsible – it’s outrageous.”
  • H.R. 1 uses billions of taxpayer dollars to fund political campaigns. H.R. 1 creates a 6:1 government match for all small donor contributions of $200 or less, meaning for every $200 given to a candidate, the federal government will match $1,200. With approximately $4.3 million allowed per candidate, this program could cost billions of dollars each year.
  • H.R. 1 weakens the security of our election system and increases the vulnerability for fraud. H.R. 1 forces states to allow online voter registration, automatic voter registration, and same-day voter registration with no safeguards – all while failing to criminalize fraudulent registrations. H.R. 1 allows acceptance of sworn statements of identification in place of government issued ID which will lower the integrity of the voter registration and voting system. And it legalizes voting for convicted felons – even if they were convicted of election fraud.
  • H.R. 1 places limits on free speech, which is protected by the First Amendment.H.R. 1 weaponizes the Federal Election Commission by altering the current bipartisan makeup of a six-member commission to a partisan five-member commission which will limit free speech and make partisan decisions about election communications. It proposes to limit free speech and imposes vague standards that disadvantage all groups who wish to advocate on any legislative issue.
